Let me know if any of these statements is not true: your home is your single greatest investment. Keeping your home in good shape is an essential part of maintaining your home’s resale value. It’s smarter to fix small issues while they’re inexpensive, instead of procrastinating until major repairs are required.
Did you disagree with any of these principles? No, of course not! You’re a savvy homeowner who recognizes your home’s importance. You’ve been paying attention to the real estate market. You’re aware of the price increases that have come with supply-chain issues since 2020. And you know the old expression is true: an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.
At Acculevel, our goal is the same as yours. We want to help you protect and preserve your home, so that it remains a safe and healthy place for you and your family to live. Acculevel is a family-owned and operated company. Since our start in 1996, we’ve provided whole-home solutions to more than 35,000 homeowners throughout Indiana and the surrounding areas.
As part of our commitment to preserving our customers’ homes, we have developed a Home Inspection Program (HIP). After we have made repairs or improvements to your home, you will be offered an HIP. In this article, we’re going to review what the HIP is, what it covers, and what it costs.
Who Should Have An HIP? What Does it Cost?
You should sign up for an HIP if you want to have your home professionally checked on an annual basis. If you do not have the ability (or you’re not willing!) to enter your crawl space, you should have an HIP. Want to have your new waterproofing system evaluated and serviced by an experienced service tech? You should have an HIP!
It does not matter what type of services you may need from Acculevel. We offer foundation repairs, waterproofing, slabjacking, sagging floor repairs, mold remediation, install egress windows… You can learn more about our services and the problems we solve with our free diagnostic tool, the symptom checker.
A Home Inspection Plan costs $149 per year. However, if you became an Acculevel customer in May 2021-present and the cost of your whole-home solution was $3,000 or more? Your first year is provided at no additional cost to you.
What Does it Include?
When you schedule your HIP appointment, a member of the Acculevel service team will come to your home, introduce themselves, and follow a detailed checklist. Once this inspection is completed, they will then meet with you to discuss what (if anything!) they found that needs your attention. Our checklist includes:
- Check and clean sump pump, the sump pump pit, the battery back-up
- Water test all pumps, check valves, any floor drains
- Test discharge line and high water alarm (replace battery if needed)
- Check dehumidifier filter and humidity level
- Test the outlets in the basement/crawl space that power the equipment
- Survey the yard drainage and grading, downspouts and drainage
- Inspect the drainage system, structural wooden flooring,
- Look for inward wall movement, foundation wall cracks, floor cracks
- Check doorways and window
- Evaluate home for safety/any risk factors/needed service or repairs
